've heard paul ryan talk about about barack obama talk it. gwen: they don't have the same solutions. >> they don't have the same solutions and i'm not sure either one of them has a workable solution. gwen: we have another part of the discussion we want to continue because we don't want you tonight without turning to the passing of one of the most significant leaders of our time. world mandela shaped the he lived in and deeply influenced an american president who says his first political act to protest apartheid. he was released from given gives me a sense of what when guided can do by hopes and not their fears. like so many, i cannot imagine the example that nelson mandela set and songs i live i will do what i can to from him. >> there's mr. mandela, mr. nelson mandela, a free man first steps into a new south africa. gwen: nelson mandela captured the world's public imagination when he stepped from behind bars in 1990 after 27 years of captivity. a freedom fighter, a political leader, and a symbol of shocking, just change. he was 71 years old by the time he stepped out of jail that d
there will not be hearing this news until they wake up, probably. you know, we have heard president obama talking about how significant the figure nelson mandela was in his growth and life and development as political leader. it's true for so many of our leaders in washington. tom sherwood covers d.c. politics for us and -- >> and we are interrupting d.c. politics because rita joe lewis is on the phone. she's a candidate for mayor. in 1990, miss lewis was the tour director for a 12-day tour for mandela. miss lewis, can you here me? >> caller: yes, i can, tom. >> what was it like on that not victory tour, but educational tour. what did you feel when you took part in that historic moment? >> caller: i will tell you my heart is full. it was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. to be able to be with someone with the values mandela had about inclusion for all people. it was so inspirational. >> what cities did you go to? >> caller: i was able to work with the democracy of south africa. we were able to pick up mr. mandela and his family. bring them into new york. >> were you able to go to the dedicat

talking about obama care, but this week, he made a big pivot to economic issues talking about raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits. when he did this a couple of years ago and assume d the self-proclaimed mantle of champion of the middle class, it helped him win re-election in 2012. do you think it can help democrats win in 2014? >> what he said there basically, if you don't like my plans for your agenda, give us your plans. i think this pivot to the economy is an attempt to change the subject from obama care, which is so dominating, the news of the past several months. and to rally his base, which is always what he does first. sometimes, that's all he's needed to do, but my sense is he's not going to be able to make this into a big national issue the party can win on because his credibility is so week. in that harvard poll, it was one of those open ended questions about what is your top priority. income inequality was way down the list and i think it is for a lot of people. now, the president of the bully pulpit can sometimes elevate an issue and make it a big iss
, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> good morning. >> before we get to obama care, i want to talk to you about your trip to detroit this week where you helped open the first of what are going to be several republican outreach centers in inner cities. you also unveiled your plan for economic freedom zones in depressed areas. let's take a look at that plan. you would set a flat individual and corporate tax rate in those depressed areas of 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits. and loosen visa rules to encourage foreign sbe pentrepre to open businesses. senator, while critics say those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. i mean, the president poured a trillion dollars into the nation's economy. when you divided it out it was about $400,000 per job. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and losers. with this stimulus that i'm talking about, a free market stimulus, you simply leave the money in the hands of those who earned i

. and you are able to afford rent. but you know, president obama always talks about wanting to grow the economy from the middle class out, not from the top down. when you look at this jobs report, are there other weaknesses that you see? >> i just think that in general, the big weakness here is we still don't have enough jobs. 200,000's a great number but realistically, at this point in this recovery, we need to start worrying about is that going to be a high water mark as opposed to a step up to like 300,000, 400,000 a month which is what would really again, create the kind of pressure upward that we're just getting everybody a raise, basically. >> jim tankersley, thank you so much. we appreciate it. you look very sharp. i appreciate the beard as well. >> you should try it. >>> coming up on "the lead," he was in the oval office while nelson mandela sat in a prison cell. coming up next, we have former president jimmy carter who will share his memories of the south african leader with you and me. >>> plus, you might think partisan politics couldn't taint the legacy of an internationa

infrastructure. our member banks outside when president obama talked about his commitment to rail. that kind of died. there wasn't a comprehensive support for that as well as other state to state initiatives. and so i'm wondering if you have a comment on the power of states uniting around transportation infrastructure? and if you also see it as one of the economic drivers. i think we all know about innovation, creativity and those things but if you can't move from place to place in the mobile, that's really an obstacle for our business community. >> first of our, thanks for sharing your story. i think that's awesome. i'm going to talk about the way and reflect on your comment for the rest of the day. because you are really what this is all about. we now have some state and local theaters. we did a few phone calls in the last few days. we had lieutenant governors, sectors of state, senators, representatives, mayors on the line, cobbling numbering 300 plus and we're just getting going. we are doing this every month having a phone call and sharing ideas in the run up to next july 23 where, as e
at this hour? >> from the speech we saw from president obama, the comments he made, one of the most striking was when the president talked about his own influence, the influence it had on his own life from nelson mandela specifically hisrencing the fact that first political act, his first act of political activism dating back to 1981 was when he helped lead and make a speech at an anti-apartheid rally at occidental college. 19-year-old barack obama with the beginnings and the roots of his political career being inspired by nelson mandela and it talks about the responsibility he feels going forward to emulate and live up to the example that he set. >> who are we hearing from him and he'll? what did they have to say? aboutce the news broke his death, there has been a real out touring of statements from every possible corner of capitol hill to imagine everyone from republicans, democrats, ted , dickmitch mcconnell durbin, nancy pelosi. regardless of political ideology , there is a real outpouring of support and memories in honor of nelson mandela and his contributions. a lot of people talking a
, nelson mandela will be laid to rest in south africa on december 15th. president and mrs. obama will be there to pay their respects. fox's ed henry just wrapped up an interview with bill clinton be who shared his memories of the leader. >> he talked to me in that prison cell as we grabbed the bars and looked out together about what it was like. and i said tell me how this changed you. how did you give up 27 of the best years of your life and come out a better man than you went? he said, i realized they could take everything from me except my mind and my heart. those things i would have to give them. he decided not to give them away. he was free before he was released. >> tributes have been pouring in over the last 24 hours. >> we've lost one of the most influential courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with us on this earth. >> extremely sad and traj ek news. we're just reminded what an extraordinarily inspiring man nelson mandela was and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family now. >> a new low, low, low, loss of pain. he accompl
at the age of 95. and just within the last half hour, president obama came out and talked about this world leader, this transformer, this human being, what he meant to america, what he meant to the world, what he meant to south africa, the impact he had and his legacy. >> we've lost one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth. he no longer belongs to us. he belongs to the ages. >> guided by the hopes, not fears is also how the president described nelson mandela. said he drew inspiration from mandela. had a profound effect on his life. and i think you could see that in the statement that the president was giving tonight. nelson mandela passing away at the age of 95. i was also impressed by the comment of charlene hunter who told us we knew this was coming, but she still was shedding a tear tonight. the passing of someone of this tremendous world impact certainly is going to have a profound effect on many people. but she being close to the family even when it happens when you know it's going to happen, it has tha
in the country. when president obama was here a few short months ago, he talked about the ways it has the potential to be an after our strengths are linked to one another. i think that's the best way to memorialize all that he meant to us. >> we know december 15th is when will be the final good-bye, if that's appropriate to say, we'll see each other again, but the final good-bye here. i can't imagine there won't be a television set or radio on where people will gather and watch this moment that will be unmatched as far as the diversity and the range of people who sincerely say that this man changed their life, set the compass of their direction in life. >> that's so true, tamron. during the anti-apartheid moment, we used to chant all the time, the whole world is watching, here again he has made certain that the world world is watching, everyone is pausing and reflecting on what this man meant to us all. we count ourselves blessed to have lived in the shadow of his grace all of these years and it's just going to be one of those moments spoken of for years. where people ask where you we
want. talk to us today. >>> the latest numbers on obama care offer better news. according to the kaiser family foundation, more than 243,000 people have signed up for private coverage. 567,000 more found out they're eligible for medicare. now, the white house emphasized that's in addition to the aca's provisions already at work, including one that keeps young people insured. >> at the young age of 23, justine was ballottling cancer the second time. the other day her mom, joanne, e-mailed me from cleveland university hospital where justine is undergoing treatment. she stopped by the pharmacy to pick up justine's medicine. if justine were uninsured, it would have cost her $4500. but he is insured because the affordable care act has let her and three million other young people, like monica, gain coverage boy staying on their parents' coverage until they're 26. that means justine's mom had -- all she had to cover was the $25 co-pay. >> justine and her mom, joanne, join me now from the cancer center where justine receives her treatments. good morning to both of you. justine, how are you doin
. >>> conspiracy theorists, it's time for the poli side bar. president obama made a little history at last night's kennedy center honors. he became the first president to talk about area 51, at least in public. >> when you first become president, one of the questions that people ask you is what's really going on in area 51? when i wanted to know, i called shirley maclaine. i think i just became the first president to ever publicly mention area 51. >> kentucky senator rand paul admitting yesterday that there's at least one person who doesn't want him to run for president, and that person would be his wife. >> i am seriously thinking about it, but i'm also very serious about the family considerations and, you know, just look at what happens daily to any politician in america. you talk about how uncivil things are. >> all right, it's not a joke actually. what did president obama, kathleen sebelius and senator ted cruz have in common? they're all on the short list as the top ten name for "time's" person of the year. the winner will be unveiled on wednesday, and i think the pope's gonna get it. waiti
him, all benefited from obama cars. this is all about props and talk and her is the thrust of what i'm concerned about, the country is, the defenders of the president's attitude, which, we know better than you do. we are -- first of all we know better than you do. you can't be trusted and we're serving the larger good and this is -- we have a right to lie to you for that reason. >> i think you're just being aharter. >> i'm not a hater. >> thank you very much. >> i'm a liberal. >> all right. now to ed henry at the white house. and what it is saying. edward? >> good to see you, jay carney was not asked about this specifically at the briefing but i can tell you that they previously talked about how secretary sebelius had been at the white house many times, group meetings, whether it's a cabinet meeting, the president with the chief of staff and kathleen sebelius. obviously they're going to get more scrutiny how closely she worked with the president before the crisis, and also as you were just discussing, hough they tried to dig out of it. interesting, as they try to dig out of it, one t
something that we probably, president obama said, we'll never see again. >> john meacham, i was talking to my 10-year-old girl about nelson mandela, explaining about him, what he had done, the sacrifices he made, the way he changed this country and the world. i'm wondering, though, of course, my 10-year-old girl didn't know an awful lot about nelson mandela. and we won't even talk about my 5-year-old boy. he'll get it in years to come. what do history books write about this man? >> the last lines of the 20th century. he was arguably with john paul ii, martin luther king, he was someone without whom the world would be radically different and worse. while america mourns him today we should remember that america was not always with him. i think that's an important part of history. president reagan opposed the point signatures of sanctions in the 1980s against south africa. it was only in 1990 four years after mandela was released he was received by president bush. he was part of the complex cold war world. this is a more complicated history that the country of the united states should take
and sports and more sports. luke is here and not talking about the bills but he is talking about the bill for america's favorite past time and who's picking up the tab. you've scored a front row seat with "the cycle." >> president obama is heading to south africa for nelson mandela's memorial service. when he returns, expect him to refocus on what he says is his administration's target for the remainder of his presidency. a tale of two americas, candidate obama vowed to heal a polarized nation but that is proving increasingly difficult. his first term ended by tieing jouj l george w. bush as the most polarizing year ever. look how far the lines really are. it's no surprise since over the past decade the nation's seen a rise in liberal democrats and conservative republicans, it's which way politics to the fringe or center. we search far and wide to find someone who knows politics and elected as a republican governor and served four presidents including one democrat named obama. and the only name we could come up with is huntsman. yes, that's my dad jon. welcome to "the cycle." we've banish
: lessons on life, love and courage." rick, thanks very much for joining us. talk about this relationship between president mandela and president obama. >> you know, wolf, i thought the president was very eloquent yesterday, talking about what president mandela meant to him. in many ways i think mandela was partly responsible for barack obama's own political awakening. one of the great legacies of mandela particularly in america is that it was an awakening for so many people that people were looking at south africa, this land that with terrible prejudice, terrible authoritarian government and we were looking at it as almost a proxy for what had happened in america during the civil rights movement and i think it awakened and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa
, you know, it's going to cost a fortune for you to put in this obama care. and i don't see how the people will afford it. >> the mayor was invited to talk about sports. >>> and now to a warning to computer users around the world. more than 2 million facebook, google and twitter passwords have been stolen. online networks have disabled affected passwords and that's tonight's speed read. >>> why do the democrats tell us things they know aren't true. >> remember what he president said? if you like your insurance, you can keep it. >> if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, period. >> what he said was true. >> okay. >> if you want to keep the insurance you had, you can keep it. >> you know that one's not true. and so do they. maybe they should call this guy. >> i got a letter in the latter part of october from florida blue and they told me that by the summer of 2014 i'm going to have to get new insurance. >> that's not all. there's more. the president says the g.o.p. does not have a plan. >> they sure haven't presented an alternative. if you ask the o
committee about the deal, ahead. we'll talk to the chairman of that committee about to to expect. >>> and constitutional scholars say president obama is getting too powerful and exercising what the constitution was meant to avoid.
on and on of dignitaries. >> of course, with president obama and three of his predecessors going to south africa, you can imagine what robin was talking about, and that is security and the kind of complex situation they're dealing with potentially a nightmare. secret service had very little time to prepare for the trip. athena jones is joining us at the white house. we're very much aware of what it takes. there's not a lot of advance work when you have the limited amount of time. air force one expected to touch down what, early tomorrow morning? >> early tomorrow morning. i think about 1:00 a.m., they'll be making a fuel stop on the way. bottom line, these are the kinds of trips that take weeks and months to prepare. this was compressed into a very short time line. the spokesman for the secret service say they've done things in less time and an they've known that any son mandela was ill for some time and they've been working with the state department and south african government. they have agents based in pretoria and rome able to work on logistics necessary 37 they're the same protocols are required any
there are sort of in some ways parallel tracts. talk about the u.s., and apartheid in south africa, right? >> we picketed with with them. we were there. >> we appreciate it. and president obama has paid tribute to the life of nelson mandela as well. >> that swept college campuses at that time, the first time he ever spoke to a public audience, he had said many times was on behalf of nelson mandela and the antiapartheid movement. he came to the briefing room, he spoke very eloquently. here is more of what he had to say. >> at his trial in 1964. nelson mandela closed a statement from the dock, says i have fought against white domination. uh it is an ideal which i hope to live for, and to achieve. but if needs be, it is an ideal for which i'm prepared to die. >> nelson mandela. made it real. he achieved more than could be expected of any man. today he has gone home. and we have lost one of the most influential courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth. he no longer belongs to us, he belongs to the ages. >> as a newly elected senator in 2005, sena
of course died yesterday at the age of 95. the funeral is scheduled for december 15th and the obamas will be attending. >> one of the things that we talked about a lot with nelson mandela is paying it forward. that ties into the next story more than spreading holiday cheer. growing movement, tips for jesus, surprising restaurants and bar servers with tips in the hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars. this one for $5,000 for a $557 drink bill at a bar in michigan. the movement is gaining steam in response to a tip left by a pastor in st. louis, i give god 10%, why should i give you 18? apparently people think that was message for jesus. tips for jesus is doing opposite for that. we have to talk about jesus with somebody who knows bit. father jonathan morris, fox news religion contributor. just in general, what is your gut reaction. >> you shouldn't have $557 worth of drinks otherwise, very skeptical. you know what? i think reaction against this pastor, we don't even need to say his name, who said, i give 10% to god, why do i have to give you 18%, that is not a very kind thing. maybe
whose name comes up whenever politicos talk about the budget, or for that matter, about hillary in 2016. it's his beth warren, the one time-time obama nominee set off a huge policy debate among democrats when she went to the senate floor last month and said it's time to stop playing defense on social security. >> if we do nothing, social security will be safe for the next 20 years, and even after that, we'll continue to pay most benefits. with some modest adjustments, we can keep the system solvent for many more years, and we could even increase benefits. >> a little bit after speech, a washington group of self-described centrists attacked warren. warning democrats not to, quote, follow senator warren over a, quote, populist inclusive. that set off a policy firestorm. thirdway struggled to hold on to its allies and honorary co chair in the democratic caucus took warren's side. new york's joe crowley said he strongly disagrees. allison schwartz called it outrageous. in an interview released today with mother jones, senator warren says that thirdway actually is framing the debate over soc
